Ellington_01

Resurrected from the depths of our distro catalog comes Duke Ellington’s Money Junglefeaturing the jazz greats Charles Mingus and Max Roach. Originally released in 1969 by United Artist, the Parisian label Heavenly Sweetness has masterfully reissued this highly favorable album on 180-gram vinyl! The real highlight here is the legendary Ellington, who was hitting a high point in his career and beginning to experiment again. Ellington’s skillful playing is beautifully paired with Mingus’ bass and Roach’s lively drums, solidifying the session as a modern classic.
